Hello all,

This may sound like a simple maintanence question to some, but for the life of me, in 3 years of playing some of the coolest basses made, I still don't know how to adjust the action on my bass. I've never had the need to since most of my most recent basses have been custom-made.

I have a Roscoe LG-3005 5-string bass with a 5-piece maple/purpleheart neck and single graphite truss rod, and I need the action lowered so that the bass is ideal for slapping and sticcato fingering. In other words, I need the action lowered as low as it can go with as little buzzing as possible.

How do I do this??? I'd like to do it with minimal adjustments to the bridge. Any input is appreciated.
